Waste Paper Handling: Chuck the Gaylord
It also helps if you have a good feel for the flow of materials that comes through your shop, adds Roger Williams, sales manager for American Baler. Certain times of the day can see a surge in the material that is sent to the baler. Variables include the size of the paper when it arrives at the baler (i.e., trim, full sheets, shredded). The number of machines feeding the baler and their proximity from each other are also considerations.
So, while Gaylord boxes may be cheap and low-tech, don't be tempted to shortchange your chance to reap bigger bucks from recycling shredded and baled paper. PI
